The flag on the back wall of the court room does indeed have 48 stars. However, there is another flag on a stand near the judge's bench., which is the correct placement for a US flag in a US court.

Foggy fails to object to two aspects of Castle's trial. First, Castle is brought into the courtroom in a prison jumpsuit. Secondly, D.A. Reyes says that Castle killed 30 people "that we know of."
